Colonial kitchen

September 4, 2012

When a Birmingham, Michigan, family decided they had outgrown the kitchen of their 50-year-old Colonial, designer Franco Nonahal of Kitchen Studio, Inc., turned it into a butler’s pantry. Then he designed a 2,000-square foot addition with an eat-in kitchen and family room topped by a new master suite. “The owners wanted an open kitchen,” says Nonahal. “They also wanted cabinet doors and appliance fronts with the look of fine furniture.”
Contributing to the mix of materials in this 20- by 23-foot space are maple base cabinets glazed in black, and cherry upper cabinets, with black interiors on glass-door units. A coffered ceiling flows from kitchen to family room, as does the oak flooring, which is stained to match the cherry cabinets.
